Dayton Lane Historic Area
Dayton Lane Historic Area creates a portal in time to the early 1900s. On the tours, visitors can ride horse-drawn carriages and see inside the grand homes of Dayton Lane and Campbell Avenue, built by industrial barons in the mid 1800s through 1920. The neighborhood contains a total of 210 historic structures in a variety of architectural styles including Georgian Revival, Italianate, and Queen Anne. Amid the picturesque homes, high wheelers ride their old-fashioned bicycles, the Ft. Hamilton Jazz Band plays, demonstrators in period dress walk the street, and craftspeople showcase their wares.
